Oorang Indians The Oorang Indians were a travelling team in the National Football League from LaRue, Ohio (near Marion). The team was named after the Oorang dog kennels. It was basically a novelty team put together by the kennels' owner, Walter Lingo, for marketing purposes. All the players were Native Americans, with Jim Thorpe as its star. The Indians played the 1922 and 1923 NFL seasons. Of the 20 games they played over those two seasons, only one was played at 'home' in nearby Marion, OH. Only four games were won by the team. With a population well under 1,000 people, LaRue is easily the smallest town ever to have been the home of an NFL franchise. The Indians were the first NFL team to have a halftime show. (It featured the kennels' dogs.) The team's owner was not too concerned about fielding a competitive squad--and it showed. Discipline was lax on road trips and the players routinely engaged in heavy drinking binges at speakeasies. In one famous incident in St. Louis, the Indians commandeered a trolley car to get them back to their hotel. Since the trolley was headed in the wrong direction, the players simply lifted it, and turned it around on the tracks.

Billy Gilbert Actor Billy Gilbert was a versatile performer, but he is best remembered for comedic roles. He was discovered by Stan Laurel and recommended to Hal Roach. Roach put him to work in Laurel & Hardy and Our Gang shorts, usually as an excitable, short-tempered character. (Gilbert played the exasperated home owner in the 1932 Academy Award-winning classic L&H featurette The Music Box.) Gilbert later worked alongside Charlie Chaplin in The Great Dictator, spoofing Hermann Goring with his role of 'Herring.' Gilbert became famous for his comical sneezes, so much so that he provided the voice of Sneezy in Walt Disney's 1937 animated classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Poor health forced Gilbert's retirement from acting in 1963. Nevertheless he was a popular figure at L&H fan club meetings until his death at age 77 in 1971. Although Gilbert was happily married for 34 years, his family life was touched by tragedy: His 13-year-old son committed suicide after his grandmother chastised him for letting a pet parrot escape from its cage.

Dance Cards Here was a quaint custom that has sadly disappeared: Dance cards. A dance card was commonly used by a young woman to record the names of the gentlemen with whom she intended to dance each successive dance at a formal ball. They appear to have originated in 18th century, but their use first became widespread in 19th century Vienna. Typically a card would list of all the dances for the evening and their style: for example, waltz, polka, or quadrille. Opposite each dance was a space to record the name of the scheduled partner for that dance. After the event ended, the card was frequently kept by the young lady as a souvenir of the evening. Typically, it would have a cover indicating the date and sponsoring organization of the ball and a decorative cord by which it could be attached to a lady's wrist or ball gown. From the 19th century until the First World War, dance cards for the elite of Austria-Hungary were often very elaborate, with some even incorporating precious metals and jewels. In modern times the expression "dance card" is often used metaphorically, as when someone says "pencil me into your dance card," meaning "find some time to spend with me". Conversely, someone's "dance card is full" implies that even though they may be interested, they have no time for another person.

26-Inning MLB Game - 1920 The longest game (by innings) in Major League Baseball's long history was a 26-inning, 1-1 tie. It was a National League game between the Boston Braves and Brooklyn Robins played at Braves Field in Boston on May 1, 1920. Amazingly, both starting pitchers--Brooklyn's Leon Cadore and Boston's Joe Oeschger--went the distance. Since night baseball didn't begin in MLB until 1935, the game was stopped by plate umpire Barry McCormick due to impending darkness. It had to be replayed in its entirety, but all the stats from the 26-inning tie counted. Remarkably, by modern standards, the game took only 3 hours and 50 minutes to play. It had started at 3:00 p.m., as was the custom in those days, and ended at 6:50 p.m. Several players unsuccessfully lobbied umpire McCormick to extend the game one more inning so they could say they played the equivalent of three nine-inning games. The press box at Braves Field did not have electric lights so reporters and telegraphers had to submit their accounts of the record-setting game using candlelight. Some trivia from the game: The score had been tied 1-1 since the sixth inning. The attendance was about 3,500. Cadore faced 95 Boston batters. Oeschger pitched to a mere 90 Robins, but his 21 consecutive scoreless innings established a record. Braves' first baseman Walter Holke recorded the ridiculous total of 43 putouts. Boston's second baseman, Charlie Pick, set a record too, but not a positive one: His one-game total of 11 official at-bats without a hit has never been matched. Years later Cadore remembered the aftereffects of the game. "My arm stiffened. I couldn't raise it to comb my hair for three days," he said. "After seven days of rest I was back taking my regular turn. I never had a sore arm before or after the game. I suppose the nervous energy of trying to win the game gave me the strength to keep me going."

These Are The Days - Cartoon Series Here's A Saturday morning cartoon show that almost no one remembers: These Are The Days. It ran on ABC from September 7, 1974 to September 5, 1976. These Are the Days was an animated television series from Hanna-Barbera. The series, although critically acclaimed, only lasted 16 total episodes. The show originally aired on Saturday mornings but was switched to Sundays midway through 1975. The second season was almost entirely comprised of reruns. The show was set at the turn of the 20th century in an American town called Elmsville. It portrayed the everyday lives of the Day family--which consisted of a widow and her three children, along with her father (the kids' grandpa) who was a skilled inventor. Each episode featured the various family members and their interactions with friends and neighbors, usually ending with a lesson learned. It was designed to capitalize on the popularity of the nostalgia and rustic family lifestyle of The Waltons, but it failed to catch on with most youngsters. Frank Cady (Sam Drucker from Green Acres and Petticoat Junction) provided grandfather Homer Day's voice. June Lockhart was the voice of Martha Day, the mother.
